Biography Henry Edgar Sherwood
His full name was Henry Edgar Sherwood, and while he was an accomplished artist, he
was my Great Grandfather, and painted many paintings, most of which have been kept in
the family or sold privately.
He was actually the Westport, Conn. Town Treasurer and Banker, married to Alice Dotten, and father of eight accomplished children.
He was born in Nov, 1844, married in June of 1873, and died in 1903.
I own one of his small Connecticut landscape paintings and was told during an appraisal of
my antiques during a move, that it was a "Very nice painting", which is why I decided
to fill in his Bio.
